|Ice Guild Kaiser - Rain [wh201] - C.P. McDill|
The cryptically familiar Ice Guild Kaiser recently emerged from his workshop with this purpose-built addition to the popular "Rain" series. This recording is a product of Ice Guild Kaiser's research into Webbed Hand's venerable "Rain" series, and it bears structural similarities to the earliest releases, while showing the influence of later mutations. He acknowledges that, at heart, "Rain" is functional music, a remote descendent of so-called elevator music, easy listening, new age and other gen...

This track has as a foundation a lightly processed field recording, and is layered with strummed or finger-picked string instruments, abstract synthesizer loops, and other sounds processed beyo...

|Asphalt's parakeet - Ice Guild Kaiser|
I was very happy when C.P. McDill told me about this release. Inspired by Sadayatana he said. Neat. Sadayatana is inspired by and infused with the music of C.P. McDill in a big way. Sadayatana has been directly influenced by music curated by him as proprietor of the Webbed Hand Records netlabel, and in the music he has made and released in various guises. As Akashic Crow’s Nest, Drone Wallah, Saluki Regicide, Tree Helicopter, Djinnestan, Rolling Calf Sinfonette, and now as Ice Guild Kaiser (Sa...

|Sadayatana 119: Whirlpool of Strangers - John Tocher|
In a corner of the concourse, by the main entrance, there was a small newsstand. The owner, a quiet, courteous old man with an air of breeding, had stood behind his counter for twenty years. He had owned a cigarette factory once, but it had gone bankrupt, and he had resigned himself to the lonely obscurity of his little stand in the midst of an eternal whirlpool of strangers. He had no family or friends left alive...

|Sadayatana 137: For The Sake of Ghosts - John Tocher|
For centuries, the battle of morality was fought between those who claimed that your life belongs to God and those who claimed that it belongs to your neighbors - between those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of ghosts in heaven and those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of incompetents on earth. And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and that the good is to live it...

|Sadayatana 090: Hidden Knowledge - John Tocher|
He liked caves, and was tempted to set out for it. But distances here were deceptive, and there might not be time before dark; besides, he did not feel the necessary energy inside him. “Tomorrow I’ll come earlier and go up,” he said to himself. He stood looking up the valley a little wistfully, his tongue seeking the fig seeds between his teeth, with the small tenacious flies forever returning to crawl along his face...

|Sadayatana 110: Past and Future - John Tocher|
All over the world major museums have bowed to the influence of Disney and become theme parks in their own right. The past, whether Renaissance Italy or ancient Egypt, is reassimilated and homogenized into its most digestible form. Desperate for the new, but disappointed with anything but the familiar, we recolonise past and future. The same trend can be seen in personal relationships, in the way people are expected to package themselves, their emotions and sexuality in attractive and instantly ...

New stuff from Akoustik Timbre Frekuency, Bruno Duplant, Christopher McFall, Playing with Nuns, and Nagual Art. Backyard Ghost, Ice Guild Kaiser and C. Reider also sneaking around in there. And a host of other broken misfit toys. Really dig the latest releases from Impulsive Habitat. I hope you do too, they are featured in a big way.

|Sadayatana 068: Pandered in Whispers - John Tocher|
The show opens with a track by C.P. McDill in his guise as Ice Guild Kaiser that was released just prior to the show. And then closes with a 78 he recorded for Sadayatana. Thank you C.P. McDill! Got to play in it's entirety the track that Luís Antero prepared for the show "Sadayatana a Tribute". It will be released later on Buddhist on Fire. Thank you Luís Antero. Thank you to Luciftias for his track "Dronosphere II"...

I can use that. Was going to rip the audio out from the video but it's there as flac and mp3. Ready? go! Played most of the new release from Subterrestrial: "Dead But Dreaming".
